Farmstead Golf & Country Club - Valleyview/Lakeview Course
The Valleyview nine is the most difficult course at the 27-hole Farmstead Golf & Country Club, which is located in northwest New Jersey approximately one hour from New York City. Small greens, tree-lined fairways, hilly terrain and out of bounds on seven of nine holes are among the reasons the Valleyview nine is a test. The Byron Phoebus design opened in 1979.

Crowded last Friday Sep 6 2013 PM
Tournament playing in between public outings made slow playing pace. Customers should be informed before selling tee times, so we can decide.
The course was in great shape. Played from the blue. Very challenging course. Greens rolled true but still could not make a put. I will be playing this course again for sure
Worth the Drive
Depending on where you're coming from, this could be a bit of a drive, but this course is absolutely worth it. Rough is deep but the grass is forgiving, fairways are perfectly spongey, and the greens are deceptive. Wonderful layout, some tricky holes, some scoring holes - some perfectly placed fairway bunkers too. My only knock is that there was a very slow group in front of us (round took nearly 5 hours to play) and the ranger who was very present on the course didn't encourage them to play faster. It wasn't a big deal to me, plenty of great scenery to check out while we waited to take our next shots.
Always a good experience
From the starter, Ken, to the cart girl and everything in between this place is consistently a good value. Good layout and good conditions.
Always a nice round at Farmastead
One of the best courses Sussex has to offer at a good price.
Pace of play
Would be better if they moved up tee boxes on 2 or 3 par 3s. Hitting 180 yards every par 3 is not only boring, it will slow the pace every time
This is a nice course to play. Conditions are always good, the course is not difficult. Pretty flat. A nice couse to play
